If you are looking for a high-quality, functional and affordable drone, pay attention to FIMI X8 SE 2022. It is suitable for performing various tasks, easy to manage and costs only UAH 23,499.

At the request of Citrus, this drone was tested by the military, and in the article you can find out whether it passed this test and what made it particularly impressive. And also the main specifications of FIMI X8 SE 2022 and its advantages, which are declared by the manufacturer.

FIMI X8 SE 2022 — a compact quadcopter with great capabilities

The FIMI X8 SE 2022 quadcopter is a compact model that can reach a maximum speed of up to 65 km/h and fly on a single charge for up to 35 minutes in conditions of no wind and a speed of no more than 8 m/s. Such indicators are typical for drones of a higher price category, such as the DJI Mavic, for example. Therefore, FIMI X8 SE 2022 exceeds all expectations and impresses with its stable operation and long-lasting battery.

First look

When folded, the drone has the following dimensions: 204 x 106 x 72.6 mm and weighs 765 grams. Thanks to such compactness, it is convenient to carry. Especially since a special bag is included for this purpose. Also, the basic equipment includes an additional battery and screws, a gimbal cover, a remote control, a screwdriver, and a USB cable.

Smart flight modes

Like most high-end drones, FIMI X8 SE 2022 has built-in intelligent flight modes. Create a flight plan on your smartphone and set specific points of interest, and the drone will follow your route. Along with this, different shooting modes, such as: “Parallel tracking”, “Main tracking” or “Fixed tracking” will help you choose the most suitable angle and method for following the object.

Resistance to weather conditions and precise fit 

With the Fimi X8 SE 2022, your flights will no longer depend on the vagaries of the weather. This small drone is designed to be resistant to rain, wind (up to level 8 wind resistance), and snow. Also, the device uses the side camera to recognize the launch pad and land directly on it.

Mobile application and convenient remote

Shoot and instantly share live videos via social networks with the Fimi Navi 2020 app. Its user-friendly and simple interface allows you to control the drone more intuitively. And the plug-and-play connection between the controller and the mobile phone via the OTG cable does not require any complicated settings. The controller is designed to provide the best enjoyment and comfort. It has removable joysticks, and a retractable case, and is also compatible with almost all smartphones and even tablets, including the iPad Mini.

Quality night shots

Multi-frame noise reduction technology and a large 1/2-inch sensor aperture ensure that the camera captures all the details needed to create detailed night videos.

And now the most interesting thing is how the drone performed during testing

The climbing ceiling is 800 m, which the drone overcame in 11 minutes while maintaining a stable signal.

Maximum speed in sport mode with a wind of 11 km/h reached up to 12 m/s. The maximum range is 10 km. The drone has a third-generation LOS stabilization algorithm, a control sensor with an accuracy of 0.005º, and a fully closed servo system. Together, they provide excellent real-time vibration damping and easy control via a dedicated remote or smartphone.

During testing, the quality of communication and stability of image transmission were also noted. During the entire 4 km journey (there and back), even taking into account the hilly terrain, the connection with the remote control was never interrupted. This is a very good indicator, because, for example, the DJI Mini 2 consistently loses connection after 400 m.

FIMI X8 SE 2022 is now available in Citrus. And since drones can perform different tasks, this one can be used as an alternative to more expensive models for “simpler” flights. After all, its cost is only UAH 23,499, and for AFU there is an additional discount of 5%.
